Manufacturer Narrative
The reported event could not be confirmed, since the device was not returned for evaluation and no other additional information is available. More detailed information about the complaint event as well as the affected device must be available in order to determine the root cause of the complaint event. The device history record could not be reviewed because the affected lot number was not communicated. If any further information is provided, the investigation report will be updated.
 
Event Description
The manufacturer became aware of a literature published by rhode island hospital, in usa. The title of this report is ¿complications of short versus long cephalomedullary nail for intertrochanteric femur fractures, minimum 1 year follow-up¿ which is associated with the stryker ¿gamma3 nailing¿ system. The article can be found at doi 10. 1007/s00590-014-1557-2. Within that publication which involved 256 patients, post-operative complications were reported, which allegedly occurred from 2006 to 2011. It was not possible to ascertain specific device details or patient information from the report, or to match the events reported with previously reported complaints. Therefore, new complaints were initiated in the system for the post-operative complications mentioned in the report. This product inquiry addresses pain due to prominent distal interlock screw followed by revision surgery. The report states: ¿one patient with a long-locked nail had pain due to the distal interlock screw, which was treated with exchange of the interlock screw to a shorter length screw. ¿.
